Set every client password same as firstname field batch for new database


Recommended Posts



Asking for advice on the best direction to take.


I've just moved my client database to a new install of WHMCS (I have used WHMCS in the past for 5 years with another business)

To make it easy for clients first experience of paying an invoice ( I have a batch load to send out)

When I imported the database - I copied the firstname field to the password field thinking this would be an easy first login for clients.

It doesn't work.


So, I have no experience running API scripts, although I can usually figure most things out with a bit of time.

I've had a support reply of this :

You could potentially achieve this by running this through the API encrypt password function, then saving the output from the password attribute in the tblclients.password field within the database.




Does anyone know of / can point me in the right direction of a way to do this in one batch for the whole database ?


Or would I be better off posting to pay someone to do this for me in the developer area ?
